Museumboerderij Tante Jaantje

Museumboerderij "Tante Jaantje" 33
1759 GM Schagen

This museum is located in a dune dome in authentic condition. It is the only farm of its kind. In this museum you will learn more about how people used to live and work in this area. Not only on the edge of the country, but also on the edge of existence: poor and worrisome. These characteristics are reflected in the construction of this farm: soberly designed, often with wood that came directly from the beach. The interior of the farm dates back to the 1930s. The museum also contains a piece of the history of the KNRM and the development of the coastline from thousands of years ago to the present day.

Automuseum Schagen

Automuseum 1A
1742 NB Schagen

At Automuseum Schagen, with Arie Kapitein as a roundabout, various car brands from Europe and America are on display. The traditional Dutch Dafjes have been given their own place. The collection is regularly supplemented with special cars from owners from the region who temporarily make their cars available to the museum. People used to be proud of their precious possessions and the family ride in the car on Sunday afternoon was an experience. Take a journey through the time of automotive history while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee. The entrance is completely free!
